Hello to Everyone, I hope you are all well and getting ready for another weekend.
Well, what a day I had yesterday, it started at 2.30 in the wee small hours when I wakened and couldn't get back to sleep, but dropped off at 4.30 which wasn't good as I needed to be up and about by at least 5.50 to get ready to catch my bus to take me to Glasgow for the craft show. With a thumping headache and a couple of painkillers, I got myself together and Alistair drove me down to the bus station to catch the 6.50 bus.
I had decided as it was so early, to take my insulin and eat a bacon butty en route around 8o'clock, unfortunately, to avoid the major road works on the A9 the bus driver decided to go a different route which entailed a roller coaster of a road, result... travel sickness!! and worse no toilet on the bus.Boy was I stressed out!! I've been up and down to central Scotland so often in my 26 years of living in the Highlands and never experienced this, but then it's always been on the main road. Scrabbling in my bag I luckily found a carrier bag, just in case. I kept keeping deep breaths trying to calm myself, the bus was so hot which didn't help me. I managed to not let myself be sick and reached Glasgow, but felt awful for most of the day. It was so good to get off the bus and into some fresh air, which really helped to revive me.
I met up with Rita.. some of you may know her and visit her lovely blog at the show and spend a good few hours in her lovely company. We headed for the Imagination Crafts stand and spent our pennies.. well pounds actually, and had a lovely chat with Sue whose company it is.
The show was a bit disappointing this time around as there were quite a few of the companies I'm interested in were not there, so I did not spend all that much, but was satisfied with what I did buy, and here is my new stash;
Lots of lovely new stencils and three pots of Sparkle Medium amongst the haul.
Apart from the poor start to the day, it was just lovely to meet up with Rita again and I'm pleased to say that the bus journey back home was much better, but what a long day it was and without much sleep I was done in. Alistair picked me up and I was back in the house by 9.30, tea and toast and bed. where thankfully I had a much better sleep. It's been a very quiet day today.
Now, after this long story, and well done if you've stuck with me this far cos I've got a card to share;
Using Baroque Meadow from Chocolate Baroque I embossed the image in Malachite Cosmic Shimmer EP. The background is different shades of DI and the sentiment is from the Breath of Spring stamp set again from CB, matted on the two different shades of green card, some Just Pearls to finish off my card. I know it's self praise, but I think it's turned out well and I really like it.
I am loving all the new stamps from CB, so many possibilities for them and you can find them all
It's going to be another early night, so just before I go just want to say thank you for all the lovely comments on my last card, see you soon,
